191. God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength

1 God is our refuge and our strength,
Our ever-present aid,
And therefore, though the earth remove,
We will not be afraid;

2 Though hills amid the seas be cast,
Though foaming waters roar,
Yea, though the mighty billows shake
The mountains on the shore.

3 Where God abides a river flows;
That city will rejoice.
But nations fear and kingdoms shake
Before God's thundering voice.

4 Since God is in the midst of it,
The city walls shall stand,
Secure and safe with God's sure help,
When trouble is at hand.
